Hellesdon High School

Refugee Week Raffle

We are excited to announce our school's first online raffle, in support of those seeking sanctuary in our community.

As part of our school's efforts to mark 'A Day of Welcome' on 11 June and Refugee Week (14-20 June), we are holding a raffle to help raise funds for a local initiative called Welcome Wheels

Launched by local charities, including New Routes Integration, and in collaboration with Bicycle Links, Welcome Wheels aims to provide refurbished second-hand bicycles, helmets, locks, lights and cycle training, to newly resettled refugees and asylum seekers in Norwich.


  • Voucher from Bramley's Cafe at Hellesdon Barns
  • Family day pass for Taverham Mill
  • Selection of eco-friendly toiletries from Be Planet Kind
  • £10 voucher from Thorpe Plant Centre
  • £20 voucher for Migrateful - an online cookery course run by refugees.
